Is it safer to fly private or drive?  

Flying is by far the safest mode of transportation. According to International Air Transport Association statistics, there is one significant accident per 7.7 million flights. We ran the numbers in our in-depth guide to private jet safety, and that equates to taking a flight every single day for more than 10,000 years before you’re involved in a crash. 

How much does it cost to fly privately?  

It depends on where you are, where you’re going and how many people you’re bringing with you. One of the most significant factors impacting the cost of chartering a private jet is the size of the aircraft.  

Soaring from Miami to the Bahamas to soak up the sun or hauling the family from Phoenix to Aspen for an adventure-fuelled weekend? A five-to-nine-seat turboprop plane starting at around $2,850 per hour could be perfect for your trip. However, if you’re planning a family vacation in Barcelona, you’ll likely need to charter a luxurious heavy jet for up to $18,600 per hour.     

Aircraft availability and the location of your preferred jet also contribute to your hourly rate.
